We booked in the mornig while they were cleaning and they were all very nice, left the cleaning and took our reservation. Good. We got there at night. Beautifully decorated with very good taste and confortable chairs. We ask for the white tuna with maracuyá (delicious, small portions though!) and a steak and good wine. Had a great night. Everything... More

When you walk into Villarosa, you immediately notice the bright and contemporary decor. The seating area is laid out in such a way that you can have privacy if you so chose. The menu is extensive with some very tasty appetizers. I had escargot and it was so delicious. No shells and baked just perfect with cheese. We were a... More

The Villa Rosa is located right in the heart of downtown Cuenca just blocks from the main square. The service was excellent, the accommodations plush, the food wonderful. I had the classic Ecuadoran soup, locro de papa, and it was extremely good served just how one would expect with thinly sliced avocado on top. My meal was well worth the... More

Went there on Saturday night on recommendation from various people. We were a bit apprehensive as only one table was occupied. However our fears were put to rest by the quality of the food and service. Great all around - not cheap.

While traveling with OAT we went as a group of 8 to the Villa Rosa. My wife and I had the beef with mushroom. Just excellent is how I would define the appetizer, entree and dessert. I would recommend this restaurant to others. Bit on the upscale, so a little dress up helps the traveler fit in.

Had dinner at Villa Rosa last night as I was yearning for some Italian food. The restaurant decor and layout was quite a surpirise as I wasn't expecting such elegance in such a location, but it was very tastefully and well done. The Staff, especially Jerry (the bar tender) were very helpful and professional. I ordered a bottle of white... More

Wow, what a gem. We had the most wonderful experience. Fred, the manager, gave us a lovely welcome. Our whole experience was fantastic. The decor is just amazing. The cocktails yummy, most of all the food was superb. The presentation and quality of food is up there with excellent London restaurants. But not at London prices, excellent value. We enjoyed...

We visited this restaurant based on the reviews of others & their judgement. We attended this restaurant earlier this evening. We were greeted cordially & led to a table of our choice. The music volume was rather loud for table conversation which was lowered at our request. The dining room was clean, comfortable & with good lighting. We politely declined... More

The Villarosa is clearly aimed at the higher end of the Cuenca restaurant market and you can see why from the moment you walk in. The decor, service and staff were all very good and I wish I could have visited again. Top tip is to order drinks before you order your meal.
